    I apologise if this is common knowledge, but I cant seem to confirm it.

    Do sky send software upgrades through the dish, or the phone line.
    If it is through the phone line, is there a way of forcing an upgrade, or is it done at a specific time? (my sky+ box is not connected to a phone line, but can be temporarily via a (very) long extension cable.

    Thanks

    It is definitely via the dish.

    That method only works for regular Sky Digiboxes. Sky+ s/w is not forceable in this way. You just have to wait until they send it down to you (normally during the night).

    I think the latest download is now available using this method. It's only when it's new, you have to wait to get it.
